Traditionally, elopements meant running away and tying the knot in secret. Fast-forward to today, an elopement wedding has evolved into a major trend with couples, with less emphasis on the secretive aspect and more focus on the intimate atmosphere, as it takes the pressure away from the planning, the budgeting and the guest-list to allow for a truly sentimental ceremony. Take a look at three elopement weddings we’ve filmed below and see why elopements are becoming such a popular choice with couples today!
As soon as Meg and Bryn got engaged, they knew they didn’t want to deal with stress of wedding planning. The two decided to travel from their hometown of Mayfield, Australia to New York City and elope on Christmas Eve. They wanted to have an intimate wedding, just the two of them, and now they have the perfect Christmas Eve story to share.
Katie and Mark traveled to New York City from the United Kingdom, combining the elements of a destination and elopement wedding with a small group of family and friends! We’re in love with her chic dress and stylish veil as they exchanged their vows underneath the Brooklyn Bridge and then took their reception dinner to STK Rooftop in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District!
Ally and Greg are from Australia, but they had the intimate wedding of their dreams in New York City surrounded by a handful of close family and friends. They tied the knot at Ladies Pavilion in Central Park and then took photos at iconic New York City locations. Low-key and fun, it was the perfect intimate big-city elopement wedding.
